In her 73rd year the deceased had been ailing for the past three months. Born in Preston, the late Mrs. Gmelin, with the exception of several years during her childhood, when she lived in Galt, had been a lifelong resident of the municipality and formed a large circle of freinds locally. She was a member of St. Peter's Lutheran Church and also of the Ladies Aid of that church. Her husband predeceased her nearly five years ago; a brother Arthur Boos of Hespeler predeceased her two years ago; a sister Mrs. Henry Herman of Chicago, predeceased her 10 years ago and a sister Mrs. Nelson Wiscmer, predeceased her a week ago. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. J. W. Danbury of Preston, and Mrs. Herbert Johnston of Toronto; one son, Allan Stuart Gmelin of Preston; one brother, George Boos of Elbow, Sask. Five grandchildren also survive.
